|~ The Dreamslayers to the cult members of Dreamology before he destroyed them all.|
The Dreamslayer is a powerful DC comics supervillain who appeared in Lord Havok and the Extremists. He is also part of an evil gang called the Extremists.
Dreamslayer is the self-proclaimed god of his own "religion", Dreamology. A demon, who gathered followers to honour him and bring forth a suitable host vessel. Dreamslayer possessed a man called Louie Marino, and proceeded to kill all the followers of his own cult, before a cloaked man (later revealed to be Lord Havok) cast a spell to weaken him. The man transferred Dreamslayer out of Louie's body and into the body of his sister Louise Marino, in the hopes that her stronger mind could keep the demon at bay.
Originally, it had been thought Dreamslayer was simply a robotic version of a previous living entity, like his comrades, but it turned out he was real, or at least his mind was. As part of the group, Dreamslayer killed most of the people on Angor, his alternate Earth. He follows along to Earth with the three surviving humans of his world, Mitch Wacky, Silver Sorceress and Blue Jay. He possesses Maxwell Lord. He kidnaps Mitch Wacky, the brilliant inventor who had created the robots of his comrades. Wacky is taken to the mobile island of Kooey Kooey Kooey, which Dreamslayer had mentally enslaved. Wacky, who wasn't healthy to begin with, was forced to work around the clock on the robotic extremists. He was only able to repair Lord Havoc due to limited supplies. As soon as Havok was functional, Dreamslayer snaps Wacky's neck.
The Silver Sorceress attacks the island, along with her Justice League comrades. The natives of the island, mentally controlled by Dreamslayer, attack. The League's desire to not hurt the innocent natives costs the Sorceress her life, as she is hit with an arrow in the stomach. Before dying, she neutralizes Dreamslayer in a mystical battle. He has returned more than once, to plague Supergirl and the Justice League. He was used and tricked by the villain Overmaster. He was also seen in the JLA/Avengers crossover, targeting Hawkeye and Flash with a bolt of energy.
